Happy weekend, lovelies! I found this blog post, written eight years ago, about the day I received my very first copy of my first book, Fairytale of New York. It completely captures how I felt, seeing the story I'd written in secret for seven years finally becoming a real book. It just struck me today how much I want to hold on to this excitement about what I'm now lucky enough to do for a living.
If you're a writer, or dreaming of being a writer, I hope this post gives you hope that it's possible. Keep writing, keep dreaming and keep believing! :) :) :)

Happy weekend, lovelies! I've just found out that A Parcel for Anna Browne and Searching for a Silver Lining are only £1.39 each in the Kindle UK sale - the cheapest they've been, so I'm really chuffed. Why not treat yourself to Anna's and Mattie's stories? Pass it on and happy reading :) xxx
